Got straws?

Maddy is my milk drinker.  She LOVES milk.  Hayden used to like it but he prefers water.  Milk is so important for kids to drink.  I realized one day awhile ago that my kids love straws, they think they are the best thing ever.

So I tried an experiment, served milk with straws, to see if this would get Hayden to finish his milk without a reminder or twenty.

It worked.  I am sold on the use of straws.  Now if I could get Hayden to stop chewing them, it drives Andy nuts.  Me?  I am fine with it, since he’s drinking his milk, I pick my battles.  Might have to get reusable ones to stop the chewing.

This boy is turning 8 years old at the end of this week.

So excited to celebrate with him.

This week has me shoveling a ton of  mulch, thanks to the not so lovely weather we had this weekend.  I am calling it my arm workout for the week.

This week will have Maddy outside a lot because of my yard work.  She loves to tool around on her little trike and talk about when she will get a new bike.

This week will keep me busy.  I find the weeks flying by and I am not on the computer as much.   I am out doing, being, taking things as they come.  And this week that means gearing up for a birthday celebration, family visit, and lots of yard work.

What will this week bring you?

One thing’s for sure, it is going to be a great week, I can feel it.
